Somebody must have spiked the eggnog out in Hollywood over the holidays -- less than two weeks into the New Year, and all that "peace on Earth, good will toward men" crap's been tossed out like so many shreds of gift wrap.

Yesterday we told you about New Line's Robert Shaye getting his tail feathers in a bunch over Peter Jackson (hey, what's a lawsuit and a few million bucks between friends, right?), declaring that New Line will never (EVER) work with Jackson again as long as Shaye is manning the helm. Shaye wasn't pulling any punches, either, going straight for the personal-attack jugular in calling Jackson an array of unflattering descriptors.
